The comic certainly implies that he's been fired.

Gabriel (Gabe) from PA says it's true, and the news should be breaking soon. I have no reason to doubt PA's folk.

This is a shame. And I predict (easy prediction) Gamespot is going to get a LOT of flak for this.

I dont care if a mod bans me... But you nintendo fanboys are ****ing sick. Somebody lost their job and you guys are freaking glad and laughing.

Tamarind_Face
it's got nothing about being a fanboy.....I brought up the last part because it was true....that review was horribly written....it's just the first one that came to my mind.....there are many others that I think are just as bad about him....somone losing their job is nothing to be celebrated...but sometiems it's deserved...whether this is even the case with this or not..that remains to be seen...

Let's just say Jeff is fired, then any and I mean ANY amount of good reputation this site has has to be be shot. There's no way any of the GS fanboys could argue against it. On one hand, an anti-Nintendo reviewer is fired, but the fact that he gets fired for giving a game a review that he deemed fair and stuck with it almost makes me respects him.

Credibility of GS is shot and the bias is proven if this is the case. Every System Wars GS fanboy/fanmod (you know who you are) will be laughed at beyond belief. Now, normally I would say this is just a joke, but if GS was contacted and they got a no comment... that's pretty obvious right there. If he was still on staff, why would they say no comment?

Damn, some people get no privacy. That is royally stupid though if that is why he got fired. I will have to go elsewhere for game reviews if this is true.

The problem is that he was supposedly fired because they wanted him to give a good score because they were advertising on GS. If that's true, then GS loses all credibility and are corporate shills.

I fill the same way. If they did let him go for game review then that's a load of **** and I hope the hole dam site gets closed down.

It's stuff like this that make me lose the VERY minute amount of respect that I even had for this website. It disgusts me that GameFAQs is forced to be related to such a dishonorable and pathetic excuse of sellouts that manage this website.
